Current entry requirements

From the 19th May, you will require a 3G “Green Pass” in order to enter Austria, and to stay at any accommodation in Austria.

A 3G Green Pass is one of the following:

  • You have had the first covid vaccine at least 21 days ago, and not more than 3 months ago, or have had 2 vaccinations
  • You are recovering from covid from maximum 6 months ago and have evidence of that
  • You have a negative covid test result – pcr up to 72 hours old, antigen test, up to 48 hours old, self test that has been digitally approved up to 24 hours old

You only need the Green Pass once to enter accommodation

You will also need a valid Green Pass to enter restaurants, and any leisure facilities.

Children from the age of 12 from 1st July also need a Green Pass.  School tests are allowed.

Testing are available for free for tourists, and is available at a testing station in the village Mon – Sat (valid 48 hours), and you can self test and upload the result via an app (tests are available from us, and are free, and are valid for 24 hours), and you can test on arrival at a restaurant (valid for that visit only).

Check in

Once you arrive, we will greet you personally, and show you to your apartment.  Unfortunately we are unable to shake your hand to greet you.  Masks are no longer required to enter accommodation.  We suggest that it is best if just one person enters the apartment initially.

Contactless check in is possible if you prefer this – please let us know and we can provide a code for you to enter the property

Hand sanitiser is available for you at the front door.  Please use this to protect yourselves and other guests.

New Cleaning Regime

In light of the Corona Virus outbreak, we have updated our cleaning regime to include the following:

  • Sanitise all keys on departure
  • Steam cleaning of all soft furnishings, followed by a disinfectant spray
  • Clean all hard surfaces, and then sanitise with disinfectant
  • Sanitise all common contact points daily with disinfectant eg light switches, door handles
  • Plus the normal cleaning regime, that guests score us very highly on!

Corona Cancellation Policy

We offer a worry free cancellation policy for those that book direct with us- we offer refunds in case of government travel warnings, and lockdowns!

Our revised Corona policy for bookings from 16th May

  • Deposit of 30% payable on booking to secure the booking
  • €25 of deposit is an admin fee, and is non refundable, remainder of deposit is refundable up to 30 days before arrival
  • Balance due 7 days before arrival
  • Free cancellation up to 7 days before arrival in case of government travel warning / lockdown due to corona virus
  • Free change of dates / voucher if you need to cancel less than 7 days before arrival due to a government travel warning / lockdown due to corona virus
  • Opportunity to purchase travel cancellation insurance in case of corona virus or any other illness – cost starts at 5% of your holiday price.  For more information, see the links below

In light of the Corona Virus Outbreak, and the potential ongoing uncertainty, we have adjusted out cancellation policies going forward.

Please note that if you, or one of your party, does not want to travel for any reason, or cannot travel due to any illness, or from contracting corona virus, or having to quarantine due to being in contact with someone with corona virus, you will not be entitled to a refund.

We recommend you take out cancellation travel insurance to cover you for this, and details on  suggested travel insurance, that costs from as little as 5% of your stay, are below.

This insurance does offer cancellation cover in case of you needing to cancel due to specific instances for corona virus.  Please make sure you read and understand the policy in full before committing, and make sure the policy is correct for you.  You are insured immediately if you take the insurance out within 5 days of making a booking with us.  If you take the policy out more than 5 days after booking, you are covered from 10 days after signing the policy.  Please note that the policy is with Europaeische Reiseversicherung, and not with ourselves, and any claims should be directly with the insurance company.
